NBC is putting their hopes on “The Cape”, a show about a cop turned masked hero, for the mid-season.
The show’s star David Lyons (“ER”) recently explained that his character, Vince Faraday, doesn’t have any special powers but, after he is framed and assumed to be dead, he goes underground and is adopted by a carnival troupe/band of thieves led by the mysterious Max Malini (Keith David, “Death at a Funeral”).
After joining the troupe, he takes on the persona of his son’s favorite comic-book character, The Cape, and begins using his cape as a weapon. The show also stars Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) as Orwell, who’s fighting crime in Palm City, and James Frain (“The Tudors”) as a billionaire who has his hands in much of the city’s corruption.
The show debuts with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, Jan. 9 and moves to Mondays the following night.
